Joe Holberg and Christina DiRocco know a thing or ninety-two about yachts. Before launching NW Luxe Concierge last year—a Seattle-based customized lifestyle concierge firm that offers everything from home management and personal assistance to chef services—the duo spent years at sea managing the day-to-day on both private and charter yachts of all shapes and sizes. “The inception of NW Luxe stemmed from the idea that time is the most precious commodity we all have,” explains DiRocco. “And after being in the service and yachting industries for so long, we realized we could help busy individuals reclaim a lot of that time by having them relegate tedious life tasks to us.”

Which is why DiRocco and Holberg are ready to cast off with a new service built especially for busy boaters: yacht detailing and maintenance. The pair can tick off pre-voyage tasks—such as cleaning vents, checking components, and taking inventory—as well as analyze wear and tear spots, tackle deep cleaning, recommend vendors to make repairs onboard, lend expertise on appropriate maritime cleaning products, or even help organize spaces such as the galley to make life on board smooth sailing. These assistants can be incorporated into a larger home maintenance or personal assistance package (services are booked by the hour; clients can then choose where to allot those hours between home and boat), or you can simply book vessel upkeep. One additional available perk: Holberg, a trained Culinary Arts Program and pastry chef who received additional schooling in France, can be booked for private dinner parties on board. “I think a lot of boat owners underestimate how much time it takes to really upkeep a boat or are overwhelmed by the idea of it,” concludes DiRocco. “Our goal is to lend our expertise so that the maintenance side no longer limits the time you get to be out on the water.”For more information on NW Luxe Concierge’s services or to book a free consultation, go to: nwluxeconcierge.com
